From Glenn Maxwell to Babar Azam: Batters with most T20I centuries

In the fast-paced arena of T20 International cricket, where records are shattered at an astonishing pace, only a distinguished few succeed in establishing lasting milestones.

On that note, let’s delve into the list of players with the most T20I centuries.
